It is a hit and miss in northern NY. I have pics of small bucks in velvet and saw an eight pointer yesterday with velvet gone.

Yep, most of 'em have shed the velvet down here, too. It's interesting that the younger bucks seem to shed theirs first. I also had pictures of a deer that had completely shed the velvet overnight, after I had passed on him the evening before.

2 weeks ago pics showed the antlers still very swollen, i'd guess they will knock it off another 2 weeks or so. Typically my place is just before opening day mid Oct

I killed a basket racked 8 point Saturday morning, and the only velvet left was at the tips of the G-2s.
